Brendon Munge visited WA as part of Outdoor Education Week and shares part of his recent research.
Lost again: Analysis of school groups requiring search and rescue when bushwalking.
This presentation centres on a study of search and rescue reports related to school orientated bushwalking trips in Australia.
The investigation consisted of analysis of search and rescue activities reported in newspapers articles and emergency services’ reports. The key focus was to identify trends related to groups requiring external assistance, the mode of assistance required, extenuating circumstances and reported outcomes of the search and rescue operation.
The presentation aims to inform and engage participants on the topic of search and rescue related to bushwalking and highlight potential areas for further improvement in the preparation for trips with school groups.
Outdoors WA supports an informed and active outdoor sector and expresses a big thanks to:
